SuperSkyScrapers Competition: Singapore Bamboo Skyscraper

Singapore_05

TITLE:
Singapore Bamboo Skyscraper

PROJECT:
The program challenges participants to design a NEW Architect’s Village Bamboo Skyscraper that takes into account the need for a contemporary approach of bamboo construction in such an urban setting and also today’s ever-increasing need for ecological design principles. The design should be visually and aesthetically engaging in contributing to the wider investigation to the use and possibilities of bamboo in tall construction design.

The new proposed skyscraper city should in general maximise positive impact of such a Vertical Structure and be an acceptable addition to the Singapore City Skyline.

It should respond directly to the issue of sustainable and ecology space creation in a city such as Singapore and also address the social, environmental, cultural and economic issues and concerns of the ever-increasing construction of urban Skyscrapers.

The design proposal must have bamboo as the dominant material as this is an investigation into innovative possibilities for bamboo as a material for tall construction design as support or covering (cladding) for such structures.
